What You Need to Know:

  1. Driving License: To drive in Saudi Arabia, you must have a valid Saudi driving license or an international driving permit (IDP).

  2. Traffic Regulations: Familiarize yourself with local traffic regulations. Saudi Arabia has strict traffic laws, and violations can result in fines.

  3. Navigation: Use navigation apps or GPS devices to navigate the city and its surroundings. Road signage can be primarily in Arabic, so having reliable navigation tools is important.

  4. Traffic Congestion: Riyadh experiences heavy traffic congestion, especially during peak hours. Plan your journeys accordingly to avoid rush hour.

  5. Roundabouts: Be cautious at roundabouts, as traffic can be hectic. In Saudi Arabia, drivers often use their car horns to communicate with other drivers.
